The plastic handle on the glass lid of my rival crockpot has broke. The plastic handle attaches to the glass top via a simple screw.
I'd like to purchase just a new plastic handle, not a new glass lid with plastic handle already attached.
The replacement glass lid costs over half the price of the entire crockpot.
The handle on the lid of our Rival Slow Cooker, Model SCVP809 broke off, and I can't remove the screw. I did use super glue to stick the plastic handle onto the nut that's attached to the screw, but the handle still is not touching the glass. Right now we are hesitant about putting the lid back onto the pot with the super glue on the handle.
J'aie un crok pot Bravetti de 7 pintes, c'est une petite merveille jusqu'à aujourd'hui car une de mes poignées s'est cassée lors de son utilisation. Je ne l'aie pas cognée, j'aie seulement pris mon crock pot ( qui était en pleine cuisson depuis 4 h00) par les deux poignées pour le changer de place sur mon comptoir de cuisine et crack, la poignée m'est resté dans les mains. Je n'ose pas imaginer ce qui aurait put arriver si il y avait eue un enfant près de moi lors du déplacement de mon crock pot Bravetti 7 pintes en inox. J'aurrais pu brulé quelqu'un pour le reste de sa vie....ATTENTION lors du déplacement de votre crock pot car les poignées ne sont pas solide du tout, je suis vraiment décue car j'adorais utiliser mon crock pot mais à partir de maintenant.....je vais y penser à deux fois avant de m'en procurer un autre Bravetti 7 pintes en inox.

easy fix go down to your hardware store and buy a big wooden knob (like you would put on a cabnet to open it) it will even come with its own screw for .99 ! . you will have to snap off with a plyers and a screwdriver whats left of the old knob from the lid . but this fix works great and looks good too !
For what it's worth, when the handle on my mother-in-law's crockpot broke, I went to Home Depot and bought a cheap wooden drawer knob (about $1 as I recall). I put a plastic washer between the knob and the glass and another under the screw head from the bottom (to prevent cracking the lid), tightened the screw and good as new.
Rival doesn't seem to care that their lid handles don't hold up. I'm going for the drawer-pull solution, myself! You would think a big company like that would be interested in how poorly their products hold up, especially since the cooker itself (I also have the SC609) is just fine; it's just a case of using poor quality materials for a lid handle. Or maybe it's planned obsolescence, hard to tell.
I am Jo Anne Gomez who posted original problem and thought the problem was resolved with husband putting on a knob he found at the hardware store. Just wanted to let you all know that the handle we thought would solve the problem DID NOT....after he replaced the knob and we did another roast in it the lid totally shattered after we'd cooked another roast (luckily the glass did not get into the food), however, this is just a BAD PROBLEM and these lids should ALL be recalled. I have seen, just recently, the exact same crock pot and lid being sold for much less. I think that these crock pots should not even be sold but taken off the market to prevent lawsuits or horrible problems. Just wanted to let you know our solution did not work and Rival was not helpful at all.
I went to Home Depot and picked out a nice little round cabinet handle. Took a small wood screw and plastic washer (milk jug plastic) and installed it. Plastic washer goes between screw and glass lid from inside. Years later still works, but untreated wood handle is cracked. But still works!
